Do you know much about wines or keep a wine journal? I know nothing about wine! I have decided it is time to finally start keeping track and learning about wines. At the moment all I know is that I like most wines! I usually prefer white because I like chilled wines.
On the advice of my sister-in-law, who worked in a wine shop, I've decided to pick a varietal to start with and concentrate on it until I get to know what I like. So I've decided to mostly try pinot gris wines (pinot grigio in Italian) for a while. I had the first one with dinner tonight and here are my notes.
Varietal: pinot grigio
Price: SGD 20, from Cold Storage
Date tasted: 21 January 2014
Food: leftover Indian takeaway and spinach salad
Appearance: very light, straw yellow
Nose: grassy, simple (the label said apple and pear but I couldn't smell those)
Taste: clean, mildly fruity, delicate, acidic crisp
I don't really know how to describe the smell (nose) and taste of the wine. Actually, I find it hard to ascertain what I am smelling and tasting. I hope that in time I will learn to discern more of the smell and taste.
